My husband Sheridan and I are both Los Angeles Natives that have lived in SB area for over 30 years, so we know the area very well. I work on Office Interior projects with local companies, and

Sheridan is an arborist. We are avid outdoorsy people, so we know all the cool, inexpensive things to do, and if you like to view nature, and eat well, you will want to talk with us for sure. We look forward to meeing you Denise and Sheridan.

Denise O'Driscoll purchased this studio in 2000

We love our neigborhood read why all of our renters love it too! close to everything yet feel like you are a world apart in our oak studded canyon by the sea. The wildlife here is amazing the 200 acre park behind us Ellings, attacts birds, and we love the variety of fish, whales, and dofins in our neighborhood.

Close to Nature, and yet close to town and the Freeway, but you would never know it in our little dead end canyon, it is so quiet all you can hear is the birds and Cricketts. Safe and nice parking too.

Peaceful stay

We've visited twice for periods of about a week, and have thoroughly enjoyed both stays. The house is next to a beautiful park, the owners are nice, the bed in the room is very comfortable, and the neighborhood is extremely quiet as well as being a short drive to downtown or Arroyo Burro Beach.
Owner's Response: Thanks Peter we have enjoyed having you stay 2 times with us, you are in our special group of returning guests, who pay no security fee and get a bottle of your favorite wine!! It is all true, we do have a very nice little canyon by the Ocean, a 100 acre park and close to downtown, we hope to see you again soon! happy Holidays Denise and Sheridan

A small studio at a quiet location

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 28, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We are a family of 3 (parents with a 8 yo daughter) who stayed at this studio (attached to the main building by the owner) for 3 nites. The studio is in a very quiet location. It has a queen-sized bed with a comfortable mattress top and an air bed. The air bed, however, needs to be pumped from time to time as it leaks air. It would be nicer if the air bed is replaced by a cot or a mattress pad. The studio is equipped with enough cookware and small appliances for simple breakfast and snacks. It has a chopping board, some silverware, dishes and plates, a toaster, a microwave and a refrigerator. The bathroom is a gem. The sink is covered with marbles and the decor in the bathroom is very adorable. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in the studio as it is pretty secluded.
Recommended for:  Adventure Seekers, Sightseeing
Owner's Response: Oh thanks for your helpful review, I have a bedroom addition coming up shortly which will solve the problem for the 3rd person, however until then I like your suggestion and will take your advise. Glad you had a nice time, and enjoyed our decor, we did take a lot of time to make it nice and loads of original and great artwork help, I know you mentioned the large wood carving outside with birds.
Glad you also enjoyed the bed we get many comments about the comfort and the sheets, so we hope you will come back again, we work out special add on's for return guests, and will have a cot with pad for your daughter. thanks again for choosing us. best regards, Denise and Sheridan

Vintage Santa Barbara Living!

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 20, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We stayed 4 nights in this garden studio which is attached to the back of the owners' home in the quiet Mesa
area of the city. This is vintage Santa Barbara living...mature tree-lined streets, lots of flowers and bougainvillea blooming everywhere. We were there for the annual Santa Barbara Orchid Show at the Earl Warren Showgrounds so the location was ideal. Denise & Sheridan gave us and our Labradoodle dog a warm welcome! We thank them for their hospitality and for arranging such perfect weather for us too! We had a most enjoyable time in Santa Barbara and environs. Be sure to take Hwy 154 out of town and drive through the the lovely Santa Ynez Valley if you have time! Santa Ynez and Los Olivos are hidden gems...well worth a day trip!
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Pet-friendly, Adventure Seekers, Sightseeing, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review, we are delighted that you chose our sweet cottage and enjoyed our attention to details. I hope you will come again and we can help you find more things to do and day trips to explore! We always do special things for returning clients, so do come back and be sure to say that you are coming again.

Great Location, quiet, peaceful, good price

We originally were supposed to come earlier in the summer, but we had a family emergency and couldn't make it. The owners were very kind and let us change the date. We stayed for one week with our little dog. We love this quiet neighborhood. The studio is tiny, but nicely furnished. The whole neighborhood is very dog friendly - with a huge park one block away.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Pet-friendly, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: I am glad that we could accommodate the change for you, and that your dog enjoyed our friendly neighborhood and wonderful Ellings park, it does make it very dog friendly, and you had a very sweet dog! thanks Denise and Sheridan
